About Planted

Here at Planted, we’re passionate about cultivating quality education about cannabis and plant medicine for healthcare professionals. Learn more about our story and grow with us as we expand across the globe. 

Our Story

Planted grew from the life-long aspirations of a passionate group of professionals to educate the world about the power of cannabis and plant medicine. We believe in the transformative power of cannabis as medicine and have witnessed first-hand the range of benefits that it has for patients with a wide range of conditions. 

Our team is composed of experienced doctors and allied health professionals who have worked to advocate for the rights of patients to access plant medicine since the inception of the movement. Many of our team were instrumental in establishing the Australian Cannabis Summit which has already provided a wealth of knowledge about how cannabis can be used to benefit the lives of innumerable patients.

As an emerging medicine, there still exists a great deal of misinformation being circulated about cannabis. Planted was formed to debunk myths, separate fact from fiction, and offer comprehensive, evidence-based courses about plant medicines. We’re supported by ANZCCP - the Australian & New Zealand College of Cannabinoid Practitioners - and have our courses accredited by reputable bodies in the medical field.

Through our courses, we aim to cultivate knowledge and nurture curiosity about medicinal cannabis amongst healthcare professionals, industry personnel, and patients who are interested in the benefits of plant medicine. Central to our mission is our goal of educating healthcare professionals on how to incorporate these powerful natural remedies into clinical or personal treatment regimes. 

We envisage a world where the value and understanding of cannabis and plant medicine is universally recognised. Our founders are based in Australia, but our branches now extend across the globe and deliver insightful knowledge to healthcare professionals and lifelong learners alike.
